Spring View which supports the Velocity Tools 2.0 sub-project. Configured using the Spring Bean xml snippet below.
public class VelocityTools2View extends VelocityLayoutView {
private ViewToolManager toolManager;
protected Context createVelocityContext (Map<String, Object> model,
HttpServletRequest request,
HttpServletResponse response) {
ToolContext toolContext = toolManager.createContext(request, response);
VelocityContext context = new VelocityContext(toolContext);
